New wheels





They are Nakayama Racing Sports(Status) ZenSpi wheels on Falken tires FK Series 452 tires. 18x7.5 with a 35 offset in the front with 245/40ZR18 97Y and 19x9.5 with a 45 offset in the back with 285/35ZR19 99Y. I originally dropped the car 1.6' front and back, but with the new wheels i dropped the front end half a coil.

What do you mean by shorter tires? You mean profile? Well...for one they're what the guy at Groads suggested and was close to what i was looking for. I originally was planning on somthing with a 27in. OD on the front and a 28in. OD on the back, but didn't really have anything that would fit my 19x9.5, so i suggested going with a 26in. OD on front and 27in. OD on the back. I wanted to put a bit of a tilt on the car, which is why i went with the 18 and 19s, rather than 18s all around. Plus with the 17x7.5s on 255/50s i had originally, i thought the tires looked like balloon tires making the wheels look small, also made the back wheel look smaller than the front, which is also why i went with a 19 in the back. Personally i think i made a good decision going with those because what the guy at groads first suggested i put, would have turned out that the front wheel would have a bigger profile than the back which would have looked horrible, atleast for my tastes.
